Abstract
Alaska, with about 74 pct of the U.S. continental shelf, is largely unexplored for placers in its vast shallow marine waters. According to this U.S. Bureau of Mines paper, there are numerous occurrences of marine minerals, including gold, platinum, and cassiterite. Offshore dredging has recently begun in the Nome area. State and federal agencies are preparing additional acreage for leasing.
